    Oh wait you're applying for Maths? Yeah most people applying for Maths tend to find Mechanics a lot easier than Statistics, must be because they're found more interesting. I found Mechanics so much more difficult than anything I'd ever sat before it.
    Yep, applying for maths at Cambridge, what about you?
    I wouldn't say I find mechanics easy, but like you said I find it very enjoyable whereas I find stats horrible. Bit annoying since enjoying stats can land you a lot of good jobs, but if you want to use pure maths in a job, you don't have many options...

    What are you trying to say? That you have more people in your year that like Mechanics? Lmao there's way more factors, but there's a reason the M2 grade boundaires are always so much lower than the S2 ones.
    I am saying stop moaning about doing M2 in Year 12 alot of people do it. And those people who did other modules and got straight 100s if they did M2 instead would probably jump up to the challenge and revise to get a very high mark aswell. M2 is like any other exam if you revise you will do well. Thos epoepke who get straight 100s are not dumb

    And I would say that that's a very good plan (though give yourself a rest every once in a while ).
    Quick question, any preference on AOPS books or UKMT books, for BMO1 + BMO2

    I must say, I've only read the inequalities one from UKMT, and that was for my personal statement, so I can't give much advice there.

    With 98 on the SMC, what are my chances for the BMO?
    Well done! You have a good chance (hopefully the thresholds will drop a little!) but you can pay and enter anyway

    Oh nice I'm applying for Computer Science with Maths, so I'll still have to get a 1,1 in STEP II and III if an offer comes my way lmao xD
    Yeah enjoying things makes them seem a lot easier I guess. I would assume more people enjoy Mechanics than Statistics though tbh.

    You seem strangely irritated, there's no need to be. I completely agree, but you can't deny M2 being harder than D1, especially for Computer Scientists. Dunno why I'm not allowed to state that haha.

    Really? Haha, I thought someone might comment mentioning they've done that question before. Have you completed your STEP papers already or are you sitting them this year?
